That run was an all time great, not just because the Dead were at the top of their game, but because of the Allmans. We had not yet heard of this band, and didn't expect much from them as an opening act. They came out and blew the room away. Then the jammed with the boys--Duane and Jerry on stage together was like lightning in a jar. The Dark Star--Spanish Jam--Lovelight got more and more manic as the four guitarists (add Peter Green then of Fleetwood Mac)
delivered on a Lovelight for the ages.

I became a believer in the Allmans on the spot.

The picture says Danny Kirwan(maybe)
Pretty sure he is standing behind Gregg Allman's head. Also sure he can be heard in the upgraded version mentioned, unless I'm off my nut, which is always possible I suppose.

The Allman Bros have so much talent - I was blown away the first time I heard their songs and I bet the effect was even more grand LIVE!

Thanks for the link as well! I downloaded the files but I am being asked for an encryption password when I try to unzip the RAR files????

Can you help me out?>

"During our set, we're tiptoeing through a quiet part of "Dark Star" when Duane Allman comes onstage and plugs in. I'm fixated on the fingers of my left hand, so I dont see him at first. Jerry plays a minimal version of the melody in place of a sung verse, and the first notes of Duane's slide guitar creep out of his speakers. I look over, startled: Jerry, that prankster, hadn't told me that he'd invited anybody to sit in. Duane a lanky towhead with a walrus mustache, is a little tentative at first, but soon gains confidence and begins adding thoughts to the flow. The music grows - and falls back into a very sparce, quiet space. Jerry takes the music into the minor tonic, and the thread becomes more and more tenuous as the dynamic remains quiet. Peter Green from the Mac plugs in just as I'm pulling the music into the dominant minor, both he and Duane seem to feel more comfortable in this space. Peter even starts to take the music into a "Smokestack Lightnin'" groove. Jerry, as deferential as ever to honored guests, steps back into a rhythm role and lets the newcomers wail. Duane steps up with some tonally ambiguous slide, while Peter and Bobby crunch away at the rhythm, aided by Jerry. The drummers and I pump up the groove a little higher, and Jerry and Duane trade a few rippin' licks. The dynamic is still fairly quiet.

Bob, meanwhile, has been hinting at a different direction - simply by playing one extra chord, he takes us into a full-blown "Spanish Jam," a four-bar pattern we'd borrowed from Miles Davis/Gil Evans album Sketches of Spain, while Jerry and Duane continue to converse. Gregg Allman slides onto the organ bench and lays down some sustained notes, and then some rapid figurations. The dynamic builds, then quiets; Duane and Gregg trade some figures. Butch Trucks joins on drums, as Mickey attacks his giant gong, unleashing waves of colored noise. Duane leaps in with a slashing, brassy figure that evokes the blues. Gregg answers, and the dynamic grows louder. Bob is thrashing away for all he's worth. By this time we have a hybrid meta-band onstage, lacking only one element - Pigpen.

Peter plays a huge climactic passage, and underneath the ending of his phrase, Bob and I slyly insert the opening riff of "Lovelight." Mick Fleetwood and Danny Kirwan, the other Mac guitarist, find room to join in the festivities. We sail into the vocal at a steaming tempo. From here on out it's a coherent free-for-all, with five guitarists, four drummers, organ, and - Pigpen roaring over it all. We go through the two verses of the song itself at least three times. Gregg takes a verse, sounding like a fifty-year-old black man even then. The band breaks down, and it's Peter and the drums, with interjections from everyone. The chord pattern changes slightly; Pig and Gregg trade vocal licks, while the guitars lament behind them. Pig takes it out and back, calling for the band to "wait a minute!" and telling his story. His lover got "boxback nitties and great big noble thighs" and "wriggles like pigs fightin' in a sack."

Berry Oakley, from the brothers, takes over on bass about halfway through. I just want to listen to this for a while, I tell him, as he plugs into my amp. The "Smokestack Lightnin'" theme returns, and the band amalgamates it into the "Lovelight" pattern. My mind starts to stretch out of shape. Everyone on stage is flat-out wailing. Danny, Duane, and Gregg take it into the closing fanfare, but Pig isn't quite done yet, exhorting everyone to "take yo' hands outa yo' pockets." The music builds to a crashing finish, and Bobby jumps to the mike and rounds it off: "From all of us to all of you, thanks and good night."

The audience slowly files out as the musicians gather behind the amp line, congratulating one another and reveling in the glory of it all. Someone opens the loading dock door behind the stage. I walk outside - it's daylight, and snow is falling gently on the streets of New York. The other musicians straggle out. We stand there, our breath steaming, and look east down the crosstown side street. A distended orange sun is rising between the buildings, casting lurid shadows in the fresh snow. I grab Bob and Jerry in a group embrace; This is what it's all about."

Excellent quote, Cliff. Although I don't rank that show in my top ten, I do rank it in the top ten shows I saw. I was miraculous. When Duane joined them again nn April 26, it was somewhat of a letdown. While he knew "It Hurts Me Too," he wasn't rehearsed on Sugar Magnolia. 2-11 was jamtime, and that's where he was at his best.

I still love the 4-26-71 Sugar Mags, rehearsed or not. Probably the best wah version of the song as far as I am concerned. I think Garcia might have busted the thing that night, because he has troubles getting it to work on 4-29.
